Ankersen Named Faculty Fellow in Sustainability, Slobogin Talks to Media About Death Penalty Moratorium
The Office of the Provost announced that Conservation Clinic Director Tom Ankersen (pictured, left) will be the Faculty Fellow in Sustainability beginning in the Spring 2008 semester. In other news, a televised American Bar Association panel, on which UF Law Professor Chris Slobogin participated, discussed why the nation’s death penalty system “falls short” in providing defendants with “fair and accurate” treatment. Slobogin, who chaired the team that assessed Florida’s system, told the Miami Herald that a “significant majority” of the group voted for a moratorium. The panel’s presentation appeared on C-Span, and excerpts appeared in other media outlets.
